My sister and her husband will. They drive an old car, live in a "starter" house, shop for sales and only get what they need (not want and think they need, but actually need). Together they probably earn 80 or 90k per year. They have almost two million dollars invested and plan on retiring in about two years, when she is 50 and he is 51. They will have over 2 million by then and think they can enjoy many years of retirement.
He did slip on ice, he did spent nine days in intensive care.
He was an obese 71 year old with cardiomyopathy. Somebody dying from complications from a head injury does not mean he didn't have heart issues, only that he did not die from it.
Actually, your stool will firm up on a carb restricted diet. People who do that, and are sensitive to digestive issues, have to make sure they get enough fiber to keep everything moving.
Your body needs protein, it needs fats and it needs ~SOME~ carbs.
In simple terms: In biology class we learned that the body releases insulin to do what? Reduce blood sugar... When you eat something with sugar in it (candy, soda, white rice, bread, pasta, etc) it raises your blood sugar level. Your body releases insulin to store that in your fat cells. You get fat.
If you eat 1,000 calories in a candy bar, you will get fatter.
If you eat 1,000 calories in white rice, you will get fatter.
If you eat 1,000 calories of salmon, prime rib, chicken, etc you will not gain weight. Your body has nothing to store in your fat cells.
Just eat a balanced mix of foods without (or with limited) simple carbs and you will never have to diet again.
"We figured the Pentax would do a good job, but we never imagined the results would be so outstanding. Our testing shows that the Pentax K-3 swept the Nikon D600 in almost every image we took. Even at high ISOs the Pentax held its own against the full frame sensor!"
"This test clearly shows the full frame Nikon D600 does not have image quality that is nearly as appealing or accurate as the cropped sensor Pentax K-3. Plus, the Pentax K-3 is currently $500 less expensive than the Nikon D600."
Maybe they need to keep updating the software.
Still, it is a great place. Now its time to go to Voodoo Doughnuts...
"Is this how sons-in-law say 'F- You' these days?" "Must be!" "Don't call him ever again."
Quite the opposite. My father in law uses it more than the mother in law, she likes her iPad.
I solved his system crash issues, malware issues and his um.... need to tinker with the system. He uses Firefox and Thunderbird most of the time. He likes Picassa for his photos. Libre Office works for his word processor needs. His Brother MFC printer is fully supported. Etc...
He is happy with his computer just working, and I am happy not fixing it.

That is what they do.... and they do it well.
